This Team as Dominating as I think it is?

Postby tianyi86 » Thu Apr 12, 2007 2:05 am

This is H2H, 10 team with the following cats:
R, H, Hr, RBI, SB, Tb, AVG, OPS, IP, W, Svs, Ks, Shutouts, ERA, Whip.

Starting C, 1B, 2B, 3B, IF, OF, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P (Used to be C, 1B, 2B, 3B, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF Util, and commish changed it after draft...)

Here is the Draft:
Round Pick Player Position
1. (7) Miguel Cabrera 3B
2. (14) Grady Sizemore OF
3. (27) Derek Jeter SS
4. (34) Jason Bay OF
5. (47) Bobby Abreu OF
6. (54) Paul Konerko 1B
7. (67) Jim Thome Util
8. (74) John Lackey SP
9. (87) Scott Kazmir SP
10. (94) Ian Kinsler 2B
11. (107) Dan Haren SP
12. (114) Michael Cuddyer 1B,OF
13. (127) Bronson Arroyo SP
14. (134) Brian Fuentes RP
15. (147) Dave Bush SP
16. (154) Freddy Sánchez 2B,3B,SS
17. (167) José Valverde RP
18. (174) Russell Martin C
19. (187) Eric Byrnes OF
20. (194) Marcus Giles 2B
21. (207) Ian Snell SP
22. (214) Lyle Overbay 1B
23. (227) Salomón Torres RP
24. Brad Hawpe

I just added Kip Wells for Marcus Giles because one infield spot got removed and put into OF.

My team stands as the following:

C Russell Martin
1B Konerko
2B Kinsler
3B Mcab
IF Freddy Sanchez
OF Sizemore
OF Abreu
OF Bay
OF Cuddyer
Util Thome
Bench Byrnes, Overbay, Hawpe

SP John Lackey
SP Scot Kazmir
RP Valverde
RP Fuentes
P Torres
P Arroyo
P Haren
Bench Ian Snell, Kip Wells, Dave Bush

I feel I got huge bargains on players like sanchez, overbay because they will get around 180 hits, which is huge in this league.

I also like my SP because they have nice upside, huge depth and Lacky+Arroyo are workhorses who can lock up IP each week for me.

Is this team as good as I think it is?

No, your team is not as dominating as you think, but it is very good.

You have no base stealing threat. Sure Sizemore will swipe 25 or so and Abreu will add another 25, Bay may take 15 at best, and you'll get 1-5 from others, but that's about 80-90 total. Given that this is H2H it matters less, but for a 10 team league you could afford to get a 50+ stealer on your squad for sure. Consider trading Cuddyer or Sanchez or perhaps even Abreu (with his hot start) as you have Hawpe to plug in if necessary.
Your pitching looks fine though I worry about the unstable closer situation of Valverde and Torres. You may consider looking for a more solid closer.
Also, your pitchers arn't going to pull in the Ws that others will.

So your team is good, but not as good as you think it is.

Any more thoughts?

I thought speed really isn't a problem because of Sizemore, Jeter, Abreu, Kinsler, and Russ Martin because this team will be somewhat competitive in that category.

As for elite basestealers, since this is a Hits + TB + OPS league, I feel their value gets reduced bc their TB and OPS are terrible (Crawford ranked 54th under this setting last year).
